Baked salmon

Course dinner


  • 1.5 kg skinned and boned salmon
  • 2 lemons
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 preserved lemon quarters
  • 1 handful flat-leaf parsley chopped
  • 1 handful coriander leaves chopped


  • Preheat oven to 180C or 160C fan-forced. Place salmon on baking tray.
  • Finely grate the zest of the lemons into a small bowl, add the garlic and oil and season to taste. Rub mixture all over the salmon. Cut the lemon into wedges and set aside for serving.
  • Bake the salmon for 20-30 minutes or until just cooked, depending on the thickness of the fish.
  • Meanwhile, soak the preserved lemon quarters in cold water for 10 minutes. Remove the pulp and discard, and finely slice the zest. Combine the preserved lemon zest with the herbs and set aside.
    Transfer the salmon to a serving platter, scatter over the herb mixture, drizzle with oil.
